Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
From the PBS show of the same name comes a guide to help women of all ages create natural-looking beauty with natural products. DuPriest, who's been involved in one way or another with the beauty business for three decades (as model, producer, salon-owner), wants to "bring knowledge to the vulnerable hearts of women" who've found themselves spending too much time and money on the latest potions or procedures. She relates her own experiences with both attractiveness and frumpiness, urges the power of positive thinking and takes a swipe at salon "snake oil" gimmicks such as microdermabrasion. (Anyone can scrub her own face raw, DuPriest notes.) It takes a while to get to the nitty-gritty beauty secrets and recipes, and sometimes one wishes that DuPriest were just a little less chatty. But her obvious knowledge about everything from waxing to massaging to not being taken in at the cosmetics counter, as well as her inventive concoctions (a guacamole-esque conditioning hair mask, homemade hair spray, Aromatherapy Bath Fizzies-all made with easy ingredients) make this a solid beauty resource. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
